I was already wondering when fans of the 90s Metallica would show up...after all apparently there are millions of them.

I don't have Ride the Lightning, is it any good? I mean ...and Justice For All would be a classic if it wasn't for the absolutely terrible tinny production.

jel -- (jel), Sunday, 6 April 2003 20:41 (seventeen years ago) link

Ride the Lightning is their best album (if you like Master of Puppets you'll like Ride the Lightning); the production is nothing like And Justice for All.

Kris (aqueduct), Sunday, 6 April 2003 21:00 (seventeen years ago) link

Ah, I see the POX's have returned with a vengeance.

special mention to "2 x 4," the last decent track they managed.

Alex in NYC (vassifer), Sunday, 6 April 2003 21:01 (seventeen years ago) link

Metallica is perhaps the only band where a POX has so much overlap, i.e. ILM consensus schocka!

No way, rex, give in to metallica...

M Carty (mj_c), Monday, 7 April 2003 07:07 (seventeen years ago) link

I wanna resist too, rex, but since Metallica had such a formative impact on me, I will once again POX:


1. "Master of Puppets"
2. "Four Horsemen"
3. "Seek and Destroy"
4. "The Shortest Straw" (I can't stand when people complain about And Justice For All's production ["USE OTHER THOUGHTS PLEASE"]; when that record came out me and my friends didn't give two shits about the "production" - this record was fucking amazing and our jaws dropped. We didn't know how good we had it. And yet, we did. Anyway, the "production" [wank] is just fucking dandy.)
5. "The Small Hours" (They own this song; the Holocaust version is just "ok". Garage Days was the first cd of theirs I bought and it fucked me up.)
6. "(Welcome Home) Sanitarium"
7. "Creeping Death"
8. "Blackened"
9. "Disposable Heros"
10. "Am I Evil"

Of course I love Cliff, but if I can ONLY pick 10, I can't very well put an instrumental above all those other great cuts..

A Megadeth POX without Angry Again is just WRONG.

Siegbran (eofor), Monday, 7 April 2003 10:35 (seventeen years ago) link

I've never heard Angry Again! What album is it on??

jel -- (jel), Monday, 7 April 2003 10:39 (seventeen years ago) link

A Megadeth POX without Hanger 18 at No.1 is just WRONG.

Roger Fascist (Roger Fascist), Monday, 7 April 2003 10:42 (seventeen years ago) link

oh it's on the live album, I will listen lately. Hangar 18 is okay, but it's too restrained.

jel -- (jel), Monday, 7 April 2003 10:43 (seventeen years ago) link

Angry Again (studio track) was on the Last Action Hero soundtrack, and has been rereleased on the Hidden Treasures MCD I believe...I haven't heard any live version, but the studio one is a lot like Symphony Of Destruction but with an even better main riff. And very, very pissed off sounding.

The bridge is so awesome - duh duh duh duh (chunk-chunk-chunk-chunk) duh duh DUH duh (chunk chunk chunk chunk)

57 7th (calstars), Thursday, 3 March 2005 21:36 (fifteen years ago) link

they replayed the interview with James Hetfield on 'Fresh Air' a couple weeks ago, and as bumper music they used "Blackened"; I couldn't BELIEVE how great it sounded, never mind how cool it was to hear on public radio. they played the whole beginning of the song up until James comes in. I think my favorite part is the beginnning, where the rhythm of the riff kind of subtly changes, it has this really seasick feel, it's kind of tricks you into thinking it's in some weird time signature.

" The bridge is so awesome - duh duh duh duh (chunk-chunk-chunk-chunk) duh duh DUH duh (chunk chunk chunk chunk) "

I think they really had some great bridges in a lot of places on that record. Eye Of The Beholder and Frayed Ends Of Sanity are worth mentioning. And I love the way they layer the gits in the really melodic middle part of And Justice For All. They had some great sounding guitar layering on To Live Is To Die too. I've had 16 or 17 years to get past the clicky bass drum and lack of bass guitar but why is that no one acknowledges how great the guitars sound?? And actually I love the way the snare drum sounds. They mixed it to sound right in your face. Anywho that record is too amazing to ever be ruined by a couple of bad engineering decisions.

Johnny Badlees (crispssssss), Friday, 4 March 2005 01:19 (fifteen years ago) link

I agree wholeheartedly Johnny. I don't even mind the bass drum sound.

57 7th, it sure is:

Stormy Davis (diamond), Friday, 4 March 2005 01:54 (fifteen years ago) link

I must say I owe quite a bit of my technical abilites as a guitar player to Metallica and James Hetfield. I sat and taught myself almost every riff on Master Of Puppets and And Justice For All as a lad in junior high. And Justice For All was a beast too. So many time changes and all those Hetfield riffs that always had that little something that was real complex and you had to really pay attention and figure it out just right or you fucked it up. Those early Metallica records really developed my ear. It made me a real quick learner when someone tries to teach me a riff or a song they've written. Its amazing how many people I know who started playing the guitar because of Metallica. What made them so special to myself and everyone I knew who loved em was how they were such a complete band. At the time the lyrics just seemed so real compared to all the other underground metal bands coming up right behind them. They weren't dressing up or wearing makeup. They took pride in being *themselves* - years before Kurt Cobain became the poster child of down to earth-ism. Cliff Burton was one of the few metal bass-players that was worth hearing in the mix. They were just a great band to worship. That was then though. Man how sad..

6. Battery
7. One
8. Whiplash

Absolutely classic band, for a year or three. I only wish Rick Rubin had produced their '80s recs. (Wish NOBODY had produced their '90s-and-beyond efforts.)

It would be interesting to know the tale of Metallica if the bus never flipped. It might be a different story or maybe not. It is a sad, sad day when Metallica hires some wack showbiz psychologist to help them work on music.

I was considering Blackened and Dyer's Eve, but they would've made the list a bit Justice heavy.

Damage, Inc (will never leave this list)
Ride the Lightning (also evergreen)

Motorbreath
Disposable Heroes (used to be ambivalent to it, now it's one of my favs)
Fight Fire with Fire
Eye of the Beholder
Spit Out the Bone
The Call of Ktulu

spit out the bone is so sick

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 21 May 2020 21:56 (one month ago) link

yeah, it's probably my favorite song they've done since 1988. sad I never got to hear it live (well not yet at least).

I took MoP off this list because I'm so over familiar with it. not cos it isn't deserving.

I am a free. I am not man. A number. (Neanderthal), Thursday, 21 May 2020 21:58 (one month ago) link

Eye of the Beholder I used to wonder why they never did live, then I heard one of the rare live versions, and hoooo god, James outright can't do that chorus at all. it's on his break point and he just struggles to sing it. even in 1989.

I am a free. I am not man. A number. (Neanderthal), Thursday, 21 May 2020 22:07 (one month ago) link

Not that I don't love others, but if I only had 10 Metallica songs to listen to for the rest of my life, it would be these.

(just as an aside, I'm listening to the singles from Hardwired for the first time since they came out, and they're sounding pretty great)
